Animal crackers are not really crackers. They are actually cookies
that were imported to  the United States from England in the late
 Barnum's circus-like boxes were designed with a string handle
 so that they could  be hung on a Christmas tree.

Animal crackers were one of my favorite treats, I liked them because they had the handles, and because there seemed to be plenty of cookies in the box. ~smile. Thank for sharing the trivia.
